Abstract

A technique for forming a high-performance sub-half micron MOS transistor is disclosed which has improved short channel characteristics without degradation of device performance. The transistor comprises a semiconductor substrate, a gate electrode, graded source and drain impurity regions, a first set of gate sidewall spacers, and a second set of gate sidewall spacers. The graded source and drain impurity regions comprise a relatively linear continuum of doped regions, ranging from lightly doped (LDD) regions, to moderately doped (MDD) regions, to heavily doped regions. Additionally, the transistor may include a punch through barrier region located within the substrate under the gate electrode. With these features, the transistor of the present invention allows for more precise control of conduction channel length without degradation of either (1) body factor and current drive, and/or (2) junction leakage, and without compromising hot carrier immunity.

Description

This is a continuation of Application Ser. No. 08/417,638 filed Apr. 6, 1995 now abandoned.

BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION

1. Field of the Invention

The present invention relates to MIS (metal insulator semiconductor) transistors and particularly to an MIS transistor having an LDD (lightly doped drain) structure and a method of manufacturing thereof.

2. Description of the Prior Art

In order to accomplish large-scale integration and high reliability of semiconductor apparatus, it is indispensably necessary to reduce semiconductor devices of a semiconductor apparatus to microscopic sizes or to enhance performance thereof. A typical example of a semiconductor device is a MOS (metal oxide semiconductor) transistor as shown in FIG. 7A. Referring to FIG. 7A, a MOS transistor 1 comprises a gate electrode 4 of polysilicon or the like through a thin gate oxide film 3 on a surface of a silicon substrate 2. A pair of source and drain regions 5 and 6 are formed spaced from each other on the surface of the silicon substrate 2 with a gate electrode 4 being provided therebetween. A surface region of the silicon substrate 2 located between the source and drain regions 5 and 6 constitutes a channel region 7 of the MOS transistor 1.

The size of the MOS transistor 1 is reduced according to a scaling rule in order to realize a miniaturized structure without deteriorating the electric characteristics of the transistor. Thus, in this structure, a gate length of the gate electrode 4 or a channel length of the channel region 7 for example is reduced. However, this reduction of the structure involves a problem of a short channel effect which does not occur conspicuously in the prior art. More specifically, the reduction of the channel length causes concentration of an electric field near the drain region 6, resulting in deterioration of dielectric strength of the drain region. In addition, hot carriers generated by the concentration of electric field penetrate into the gate oxide films 3 and part of them are trapped or cause an interfacial potential. As a result, characteristic deteriorations such as a change of a threshold voltage VTH and lowering of transconductance and current drive can occur.

In order to solve such difficulties due to concentration of electric field obstructing fine reduction of a device structure, MOS transistors of an LDD structure have been proposed. FIG. 7B shows a structure of such an LDD MOS transistor. This structure of the LDD MOS transistor is shown, for example, in "Fabrication of High-Performance LDD FETs with Oxide Sidewall-Spacer Technology," by P. J. Tsang, IEEE Transaction on Electron Devices, Vol. ED-29 1982. Referring to FIG. 7B, the LDD MOS transistor has a double offset structure in which source and drain regions 5 and 6 include high-concentration n+ impurity regions 5a and 6a and low-concentration n- impurity regions 5b and 6b, respectively. This LDD structure is adopted particularly for the purpose of suppressing electric field concentration near the drain region 6. The n- impurity regions 5b and 6b are formed on side surfaces of the source and drain regions 5a and 6a, respectively, so that impurity concentrations in pn junction portions with the substrate may be changed gradually. Thus, a depletion layer generated during operation of the transistor extends toward the source and drain regions to attenuate electric field.

The above-described structure prevents breakdown between the drain region 6 and the channel region 7 and thus prevents deterioration of dielectric strength of the drain region 6. Further, the attenuation of electric field concentration serves to suppress generation of hot carriers. However, in the above-described LDD structure, another problem occurs that an on-resistance characteristic of the transistor is deteriorated. The low-concentration n- impurity regions 5b and 6b of the source and drain regions function as high-resistance regions because of the low impurity concentration. Consequently, the n- impurity regions 5b and 6b become parasitic resistances connected in series between the source and drain regions 5 and 6, causing lowering of drain current and deterioration of the n-resistance characteristic of the transistor.

Further, the influence of the parasitic resistance is strengthened by the structure in which the sidewalls 8 of the silicon oxide films are formed on the surfaces of the low-concentration n- source and drain regions 5b and 6b. More specifically, hot carriers having larger energy than that in a thermal equilibrium state are generated due to the electric field near the drain region 6. Those hot carriers are generated near the n- impurity region 6b of the drain region and some of them are injected in a lower portion of the sidewall 8 of the drain region. A surface region near the n- impurity region 6b is depleted with time due to an electric field caused by the hot carriers trapped at an energy level in the underlying oxide film of the sidewall 8. As a result, the threshold voltage VTH of the transistor is raised or conductance is decreased due to the depleted high-resistance portion of the n- impurity region 6b even in an operation state. Consequently, the drain characteristics are deteriorated and duration of reliability of the transistor practically utilizable is shortened.

Therefore, in order to prevent influence of hot carriers trapped in the sidewalls of the gate electrode, a transistor structure as shown in FIG. 7C has been proposed. This structure is the so-called gate overlapped LDD structure, in which a gate electrode is formed to overlap low-concentration impurity regions of the LDD structure. The structure of FIG. 7C is indicated in Japanese Patent Laying-Open No. 119078/1986. A transistor of a similar structure is disclosed in "The Impact of Gate-Drain Overlapped LDD (Gold) for Deep Submicron VLSI's," by R. Izawa, Technical Digest of International Electron Devices Meeting, p. 38 (1987) or in U.S. Pat. No. 4,727,038.

As shown in FIG. 7C, in a gate overlapped LDD MOS transistor, low-concentration n- impurity regions 5b and 6b of source and drain regions 5 and 6 are formed on a surface of a silicon substrate 2 under regions of a gate electrode 4. In such a gate electrode structure, if hot carriers generated near the drain 6 are injected into a gate oxide film 3, those hot carriers can be removed under the influence of electric field from the gate electrode 4. Consequently, the surfaces of the n- impurity regions 5b and 6b can be prevented from being depleted and having high resistance. Further, change in a threshold voltage and deterioration of transconductance and current can be prevented.

However, in such a gate overlapped LDD MOS transistor, a gate capacitance is increased by an amount corresponding to extended regions of the gate electrode 4 compared with the LDD MOS transistor shown in FIG. 7B. In other words, the capacitance portion formed by the gate electrode 4 over the n- impurity regions 5b and 6b, the gate oxide film 3 and the silicon substrate 2 causes the increase of the gate capacitance. As the result, responsiveness as the MOS transistor is lowered.

In a gate overlapped type of LDD MOS transistor, in some cases, boundary portions between n+ impurity regions 5a, 6a and n- impurity regions 5b and 6b are diffused under the gate electrode 4 by a thermal process of the manufacturing processes. In this case, regions where the end portions of the gate electrode 4 and the n+ impurity regions 5a and 6a are overlapped are formed. When thickness of the gate oxidization layer 3 becomes thin in such an overlapped region, tunneling occurs between the bands in a depleted drain region, whereby drain leak current is generated. Such a phenomenon is described in "IEDM Technical Digest," by T. Y. Chan et al. (1987).

As described in the foregoing, in conventional LDD MOS transistors, n- impurity regions become parasitic resistance due to hot carriers and gate capacitance generated in a gate overlapped type of LDD structure is increased or a drain leak current is generated. Accordingly, alternate device structures, including substrate and drain engineering, need to be investigated to overcome these problems as the devices are scaled down to smaller geometries.

SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION

These and additional objectives are accomplished by the various aspects of the present invention wherein, briefly, according to a principal aspect, a technique for forming a high-performance sub-half micron MOS transistor is disclosed which has improved short channel characteristics without degradation of device performance.

A first aspect of the present invention is directed to a technique for forming a MOS device which comprises a semiconductor substrate, a gate electrode, graded source and drain impurity regions, a first set of gate sidewall spacers, and a second set of gate sidewall spacers. The graded source and drain impurity regions comprise a relatively linear continuum of doped regions, ranging from lightly doped (LDD) regions, to moderately doped (MDD) regions, to heavily doped regions. In forming the transistor of the present invention according to this first aspect, the gate electrode is first formed, followed by implantation of the relatively low impurity concentration (LDD) source/drain regions. Then, a first set of sidewall spacers is formed adjacent to the gate, and the relatively moderate impurity concentration (MDD) source/drain regions are then implanted into the substrate adjacent to the LDD regions. Additionally, localized pocket regions for reducing short channel effect may also be implanted at this stage. Thereafter, the second set of sidewall spacers is formed around the gate adjacent to the outer portion of the first sidewall spacers. After formation of the second sidewall spacers, relatively high impurity concentration source/drain regions are then implanted adjacent to the moderately doped regions.

A second aspect of the present invention is directed to a MOS device comprising a semiconductor substrate, a gate electrode, source and drain impurity regions, at least one set of sidewall spacers, and a punch through barrier region located within the substrate under the gate electrode. The punch-through barrier region reduces undesirable effects due to punch-through phenomena, and is separate and distinct from other regions within the substrate (such as, for example, pocket implant regions) which may also be used to reduce the effects associated with punch-through phenomena. Unlike conventional implantation techniques, however, the formation of the punch-through barrier region of the present invention occurs before the formation of the gate oxide layer and the gate electrode. In this way a substantial portion of the punch-through barrier region may be formed under the yet-to-be-formed gate electrode without contaminating the gate oxide region. The punch-through barrier region is particularly well suited for sub-half micron technology because it improves punch-through characteristics without degradation on body factor and/or performance of the transistor.

The technique of forming the transistor of the present invention provides the following advantages, especially for sub-half micron technology. First, the transistor of the present invention significantly improves short-channel characteristics while maintaining acceptable subthreshold leakage. Additionally, the transistor of the present invention allows for more precise control of conduction channel length without degradation of either (1) body factor and current drive, and/or (2) junction leakage, and without compromising hot carrier immunity. Since there is no increase in source/drain junction capacitance, there is no degradation on performance, unlike conventional fabricated CMOS devices. As a result, a reliable deep/subhalf-micron MOS transistor with high performance can be constructed using the technique of the present invention.

Additional objects, features and advantages of the various aspects of the present invention will become apparent from the following description of its preferred embodiment, which description should be taken in conjunction with the accompanying drawings.

DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE PREFERRED EMBODIMENT

CMOS device design involves the trade-off of yield, performance, and reliability. Conventional lightly doped drain (LDD) structures have been used to provide improved hot carrier immunity for several process generations of transistors from 1.5 microns down to 0.8 microns CMOS technology. However, large tilted angle (LATID) implantation techniques for LDD is needed to meet acceptable hot carrier lifetime for deep submicron (for example, 0.6 microns of less) devices for 5-volt applications. Additionally, in deep submicron regions (sub-0.5 microns), the reduction of the operating voltage (for example, from 5 volts to 3.3 volts) is the only resort to produce acceptable hot carrier immunity and to meet power consumption constraints for ultra-large-scaled integration (ULSI) products. However, the reduction of supply voltage will significantly decrease MOSFET drive current.

Standard scaling techniques only partially offset the current loss by thinning gate oxide thickness. As gate oxide thickness reduces below 100 Å, gate-induced drain leakage (GIDL) becomes a new design constraint. For low-power/low supply voltage ULSI packages, stringent off-state leakage is needed to improve battery-lifetime. To suppress threshold voltage roll-off and subthreshold leakage, and thus to reduce off-state leakage, requires the reduction of drain junction depth.

As MOSFET channel lengths are scaled down further below 0.5 microns and down to 0.35 microns, the channel punch-through and time-dependent dielectric breakdown of conventional thermal oxide become critical and dominant constraints limiting yield, reliability and performance for ULSI products, in addition to hot carrier effect (HCE), short channel effect (SCE), and gate-induced drain leakage (GIDL).

To meet hot carrier immunity and time-dependent dielectric breakdown (TDDB) requirements for sub-0.5 micron CMOS transistors, a supply voltage is preferably scaled down from 3.3 volts to 2.5 volts. To meet (or maintain) off-state leakage requirements for ULSI packages, the threshold voltage roll-off, subthreshold leakage, and GIDL for MOSFETs need to be maintained at the same level or even reduced further for a higher level of integration. Unfortunately, conventional lightly doped drain (LDD) structures for MOSFETs are becoming more difficult and impractical to reduce drain junction and to improve subthreshold characteristics, especially for buried PMOS. As the dimensions scale down to 0.35 microns, punch-through (PT) phenomena from source to drain appears as a critical device design constraint.

To partially compensate MOS drive current loss due to reduction of supply voltage (from 3.3 volts to 2.5 volts), the gate oxide thickness may be dropped below 65 Å. At that point, GIDL becomes increasingly severe and time-dependent dielectric breakdown (TDDB) phenomenon appears as a new device design constraint. Since scaled-down supply voltage cannot suppress the end result in these constraints, alternate dielectrics, beyond thermal oxide, are needed for sub-0.5 micron transistors. Although the following discussion related to alternative device structures for sub-0.5 micron transistors is limited to conventional thermally grown oxide, it is to be understood that other gate dielectrics commonly known to those skilled in the art may also be used.

It is desirable to improve punch-through characteristics in MOS devices as the devices are scaled down to smaller geometries (for example, from 0.5 microns to 0.35 microns ). In order to maintain process simplicity, and thus low wafer cost, a scaled-up well technique (i.e., heavier well) together with an LDD structure may be used to improve punch-through characteristics. However, as well concentration scales up, the body factor becomes poor, junction capacitance increases, and thus performance is degraded. Moreover, one of the more important design constraints for sub-0.5 micron device structures is to improve punch-through characteristics without degradation on body factor and/or performance of the device.

Graded LDD Device with Localized Pocket (HALO) Implants

In accordance with the above-described design constraints, a first embodiment of the present invention is provided which improves short channel characteristics, but does not degrade device performance. For purposes convenience and easy reference, this first embodiment of the present invention may be referred to as a graded LDD device with localized pocket (HALO) implants. The process steps for fabricating such a device are shown in FIGS. 1-4, which are described in greater detail below.

The structures shown in FIGS. 1A and 1B are formed in retrograde twin wells (P-well 20, and N-well 20') within a P-type common substrate 10. The P-substrate 10 is about 500 microns thick and has a resistivity of (5-8) ohm-cm. For convenience purposes, most of the discussion which follows is related to the formation of an NMOS transistor, with the understanding that such discussion is equally applicable to PMOS transistors, except where otherwise noted.

After an oxide insulating layer 25 is formed on the substrate by conventional local oxidation of silicon (LOCOS) process, retrograde wells 20 and 20' are then constructed by separate masking and implantation steps.

It is to be noted that the formation of retrograde wells 20 and 20' in the present invention differ from the conventional technique of implanting conventional twin wells. In the retrograde p-well process, for example, the well is implanted with a high energy boron implant as opposed to a thermal diffusion process. As a result of this step and the fact that the implant is made after field oxide formation, the p-well impurities do not diffuse from their original implanted position, thus reducing the lateral diffusion of the well. This enables reductions in the spacing between p-and n-transistors. Further advantage of the retrograde process is that junction depth, sheet resistance, and threshold voltage are independent, allowing separate adjustments to take place for optimizing the behavior of the CMOS devices. A more detailed discussion of retrograde well formation process is provided in Principles of CMOS VLSI Design, by Neil H. E. Weste and Kamran Eshraghian, Addison-Wesley Publishing Co., Menlo Park, Calif. 1985, herein incorporated by reference in its entirety.

Since conventional twin wells are formed using relatively low implant energy along with a high temperature drive-in (e.g., 1200° C.), such wells are formed to have a high concentration of dopant at the surface of the well, which tapers off relative to the junction depth of the well. The junction depth of conventional twin wells may be, for example, about 4 microns (which is considered relatively deep). The advantage of the conventional well technique is that the high surface concentration of dopant allows for easier and more consistent control of the threshold voltage of the transistor. Additionally, the use of relatively low implant energy is less costly than techniques which require high implant energy.

In contrast, the technique of the present invention for forming retrograde wells 20 and 20' employ a relatively high implant energy technique and a relatively low temperature drive-in (e.g., 1000° C.). In this way, the retrograde wells of the present invention has a lower surface dopant concentration which gradually increases relative to the junction depth. The dopant concentration may be at its maximum value at a depth of about 1-2 microns. Generally, the retrograde well has a shallow junction depth which typically does not exceed 2 microns. The advantage of using a retrograde well over conventional twin wells is that the reduction of dopant concentration at the surface of the retrograde well results in a transistor which has improved body factor characteristics and improved current drive characteristics. However, it is to be noted that as the dopant concentration at the surface of the well is lowered, this will cause the threshold voltage (VT) to vary, making it more difficult to control and keep uniform the threshold voltage for each transistor. Because of this problem, and because the formation of a retrograde well requires high implantation energy, which is more costly, modern techniques for forming conventional short channel CMOS transistors typically use conventional twin wells rather than retrograde wells. Such a conventional technique, however, is contrary to the technique of the present invention.

For the formation of the retrograde N-well 20', phosphorous is implanted into the desired region according to the following implant conditions:

Energy(E)=360 KeV,

Q(dose)=(1.0-2.0)×10.sup.13 cm.sup.-2.

Formation of the retrograde P-well 20 is achieved by implanting boron in the desired region according to the following implant conditions:

Energy(E)=200 KeV,

Q(dose)=(0.5-1.5)×10.sup.13 cm.sup.-2.

After the respective dopants have been implanted into well regions 20 and 20', the wells are subjected to a low temperature anneal process (at about 1000 degrees C.). It is to be noted that such a low temperature annealing process is not used in the formation of conventional twin wells. Rather, to form conventional twin wells, a high temperature annealing process (at about 1200 degrees C.) is used, which causes greater diffusion of the dopant.

After the low temperature anneal process, a sacrificial oxide layer (not shown) of approximately 350 Å may then be thermally grown on the retrograde wells after removal of the remaining pad oxide formed during implant anneal.

Next, threshold voltage implants 15 and 15' are selectively performed using masking steps. Each threshold voltage implant (VT) may be performed separately according to the following typical conditions:

NMOS V.sub.T implant: BF.sub.2, 50 KeV, (1.0-2.5)×10.sup.12 cm.sup.-2.

PMOS V.sub.T implant: BF.sub.2, 50 KeV, (2.0-5.0)×10.sup.12 cm.sup.-2.

After removing the sacrificial oxide layer, a layer of gate oxide 35 is thermally grown on exposed portions of the substrate. Preferably, the gate oxide thickness is about 65 Å.

FIGS. 2A and 2B illustrate the next processing steps in forming the transistor of the present invention, wherein gate stacks 26 are respectively formed over wells 20 and 20'. As shown in FIGS. 2A and 2B, stack 26 comprises a plurality of layers which collectively form the gate portion of each transistor. The plurality of layers in stack 26 include a layer of TEOS, a layer of Tungsten silicide (WSix), and a layer of highly in-situ doped N-type polysilicon (d-poly). The thickness of each layer may, of course, vary depending upon the desired characteristics of the transistor.

The gate stack 26 is formed over the gate oxide layer 35 using a mask and plasma etch process. An example of the sequential deposition steps in forming the gate stack 26 is as follows. First, in-situ doped poly is formed using an LPCVD process. The poly layer may be formed to have a thickness of about 1,000 Å, and an N-dopant concentration of about 4×1020 cm-3. Next, WSix is sputtered on top of the poly layer. The thickness of the WSix layer is also about 1,500 Å. Next, TEOS is deposited using an LPCVD process. The thickness of the TEOS layer is about 1,500 Å.

The conduction channel in each transistor is defined by the gate stack length, as indicated by 29 and 29'. In the preferred embodiment, the channel length 29 and 29' of each transistor is approximately 0.35 microns.

After the formation of the gate, lightly doped (N-) regions are then formed within each transistor using masking and implantation steps. In FIG. 2A, N-type lightly doped (N- or NLDD) source/drain regions 21a and 21b are formed by implanting arsenic or phosphorus in regions 21a and 21b according to the following implant conditions:

Energy(E)=(30-60)KeV,

Q(dose)=(1.0-2.0)×10.sup.13 cm.sup.-2.

P-type lightly doped (P- or PLDD) source/drain regions 21a' and 21b' are formed by implanting BF2 in regions 21a' and 21b' according to the following implant conditions:

Energy(E)=30KeV,

Q(dose)=(1.0-2.0)×10.sup.13 cm.sup.-2.

Next, as shown in FIGS. 3A and 3B, first sidewall oxide spacers 36a, 36a' and 36b, 36b' are formed simultaneously by deposition and then plasma etch back. Each of the first oxide spacers may have a thickness ranging from about 200 Å to about 1,000 Å. As described below, the formation of thin first sidewall spacers 36a, 36b enable moderately doped source/drain regions 33a, 33b (FIG. 4A) to be formed.

After the formation of the first sidewall spacers, moderately doped source/drain regions 33a, 33b, 33a' and 33b', and pocket implant regions 31a, 31b, 31a' and 31b' are formed as shown in FIGS. 3A and 3B by employing additional masking and sequential implantation steps. For example, moderately doped (N) source/drain regions 33a and 33b, and lightly doped P-type pocket regions 31a and 31b are formed by masking and sequentially implanting the NMOS transistor according to the following implant conditions:

Moderately doped (N) source/drain implant (33a, 33b): arsenic,

E=60KeV,

Q(dose)=(3×10.sup.13 -1×10.sup.14)cm.sup.-2.

P-type pocket implant (31a, 31b): boron,

θ=(15°-45°),

E=(20-60)KeV,

Q(dose)=(0.5-1.0)×10.sup.13 cm.sup.-2.

Similarly, moderately doped (P) source/drain regions 33a' and 33b', and lightly doped N-type pocket regions 31a' and 31b' are formed for PMOS transistors by masking and sequentially implanting according to the following conditions:

Moderately doped (P) source/drain implant (33a', 33b'): BF2,

E=30KeV,

Q(dose)=(3×10.sup.13 -1×10.sup.14)cm.sup.-2.

N-type pocket implant (31a', 31b'): phosphorous,

θ=(15°-45°),

E=(50-100)KeV,

Q(dose)=(0.5-1.0)×10.sup.13 cm.sup.-2.

Unlike conventional techniques for manufacturing CMOS transistors, the transistor of the present invention utilizes horizontally graded source/drain regions which comprise a relatively linear continuum of doped regions, ranging from lightly doped (N-) regions 21a-b, to moderately doped (N) regions 33a-b, to heavily doped (N+) regions 41a-bas shown in FIG. 4A. In order to form the moderately doped source/drain (MDD) regions, it is preferable to use a dopant concentration which is higher than the dopant concentration of the LDD implant. Additionally, the implant characteristics of the dopant concentration of the moderately doped source/drain regions should preferably be calculated to reduce source/drain resistance and to enhance current drive capability without compromising hot-carrier immunity. The implant conditions described above satisfy such objectives.

To form localized pocket regions 31a-b, 31a'-b', a Large Tilted-Angle Implant (LATI) process is used. The implant energy and dopant concentration is preferably chosen to ensure that the pocket regions are formed underneath the LDD and MDD regions without any portion of the pocket implant extending into the conduction channel (which extends laterally between the source and drain near the surface of the substrate under the gate). By forming pocket implants in accordance with the above-described technique, the transistor of the present invention offers the unexpected benefit of increased suppression of short channel effects and deterioration of punch-through characteristics without compromising conduction channel length control, current-drive capability, and/or hot-carrier immunity.

Next, as shown in FIGS. 4A and 4B, second sidewall oxide spacers 56a-b, 56a'-b' are formed simultaneously by deposition and then plasma etch back. Each of the second oxide spacers may have a thickness ranging from about 1500 Å to about 2000 Å.

After formation of the second sidewall spacers, source/drain regions 41a, 43a, 41b, and 43b (and corresponding regions in the PMOS transistor) are formed as shown in FIGS. 4A and 4B by employing masking and sequential co-implantation steps. For example, graded heavily doped source/drain regions 41a-b and 43a-b are formed by masking and sequentially co-implanting the NMOS transistor according to the following co-implant conditions:

First Implant (N+) (41a, 41b): Arsenic,

Energy (E)=60 KeV,

Q(dose)=3×10.sup.15 ;

Second Implant (N-) (43a, 43b): Phosphorus,

Energy (E)=(80-120)KeV,

Q(dose)=(1.0-3.0)×10.sup.13.

It is to be noted that the conditions for the first implant utilize a high dopant concentration and a low implantation energy for forming regions 41a and 41b. On the other hand, the second implant conditions utilize a low dopant concentration and high implantation energy for forming regions 43a and 43b.

Similarly, graded, heavily doped source/drain regions 41a'-b', 43a'-b' are formed for PMOS transistors by masking and sequentially co-implanting according to the following co-implant conditions:

First Implant (P+) (41a', 41b'): BF2,

Energy (E)=45 KeV,

Q(dose)=2×10.sup.15 ;

Second Implant (P-) (43a', 43b'): Boron,

Energy (E)=(40-80)KeV,

Q(dose)=(1.0-3.0)×10.sup.13.

To construct co-implant source/drain regions 41a, 43a, 41b, and 43b, in addition to conventional implant techniques for forming source/drain regions at low implant energy and high dosage concentration, a co-implant technique of the present invention is used. The co-implant technique uses a higher implantation energy and a lower dosage to form vertically graded source/drain regions with deeper junctions. The graded regions comprise a heavily doped (N+) source/drain region 41a-b, and a lightly doped (N-) source/drain region 43a-b. The co-implant (second implant) energy and dosage have been specifically selected to fully compensate for the doped pocket implant regions of opposite type dopant outside the sidewall spacers, without impacting the pocket implant regions (31a and 31b) under the sidewall spacers and the gate. In this way, the vertically graded source/drain regions of the present invention will ensure low junction leakage and low junction capacitance.

After formation of the graded source/drain regions 41a, 41b, 43a, and 43b, the resultant transistor (as, for example, shown in FIG. 4A) will include a lightly doped source/drain region 21a, 21b, a moderately doped source/drain region 33a, 33b, and a heavily doped source/drain region 41a, 41b. By including a moderately doped (MDD) region in between the lightly doped and the heavily doped regions, the transistor of the present invention provides the unexpected advantage of lowering the resistivity of the respective source/drain regions while simultaneously maintaining improved hot carrier immunity. The lowering of the resistivity of the respective source/drain regions is due primarily to the lightly doped region 21a and 21b being narrower in width than similar regions in conventional CMOS transistors.

In order to produce the final structure as shown in FIGS. 4A and 4B, an annealing step is performed on the device. The annealing process may be, for example, a furnace annealing step at 850° C. for twenty minutes in N2, or a rapid thermal anneal (RTA) at 1,000° C. for twenty seconds.

FIGS. 4A and 4B illustrate one embodiment of the transistor of the present invention which is conveniently described as a graded LDD transistor with localized pocket implants 31a, 31b, 31a' and 31b'. Also shown in FIGS. 4A and 4B are various measurements for indicating the junction depth of specific doped regions within a transistor. For example, variables x1 and x1 ' measure the junction depth of the graded heavily doped source/drain regions. Variables x2 and x2 ' measure the junction depth of the localized pocket (HALO) implant regions. Variables x3 and X3 ' measure the junction depth of graded lightly doped source/drain regions. Variables s and s' measure the spacing between the source-side and the drain-side pocket implant regions.

For sub-0.5 micron technology, the preferred targeted dimensions of the above-described variables are as follows:

0.2 micron≦x1, x1 '(S/D junction)≦0.25 microns,

0.05 microns≦x3, x3 '(LDD)≦0.10 microns,

x3, x3 '(LDD)<x2, x2 '(HALO)<x1, x1 '(S/D) for optimized profile,

x3, x3 '(LDD)<x2, x2 '(HALO) for improved suppression of short channel effect,

s,s'<0.25 microns for gate length of 0.35 microns on drawn.

As shown for example in FIG. 4A, it is preferable for the depth of source/drain regions 43a, 43b (denoted by distance x1) to be greater than the depth of the pocket implant regions 31a, 31b (denoted by distance x2). By keeping the value x1 greater than x2, the transistor of the present invention offers the advantage of both reduced junction capacitance and reduced junction leakage.

It is to be noted that the pocket implant energy and the implant angle θ together define the HALO junction depth and the spacing between source and drain-side pocket regions 31a, 31b, 31a' and 31b'. The pocket implant dosage (Q) preferably compensates the opposite type of dopant in LDD areas 21a-b, 21a'-b', and thus allows reduction of the junction depth of the lightly doped source/drain regions. Higher Q(dosage) will improve punch-through characteristics and threshold voltage roll-off (short channel effect) due to shallower junction in LDD regions.

In the optimized HALO profile (defined by):

X3, X3 '(LDD)<x2, x2 '(HALO)<x1, x1 '(S/D),

narrow spacing of s, s' (achieved by a combination of higher E and larger angle θ) improves bulk punch-through characteristics. However, it will also increase body factor, thereby reducing current drive capability. Minimum spacing of s and s' is preferable to maintain good punch-through and short channel characteristics without degradation on body factor and current drive capability.

The graded lightly doped drain transistors with localized pocket regions (shown in FIGS. 4A and 4B) provide the following advantages. First, the transistor of the present invention may be designed to have a channel length of 0.5 microns or less. Second, the transistor of the present invention significantly improves short channel characteristics while maintaining acceptable subthreshold leakage. Additionally, the transistor of the present invention allows for better control of the conduction channel length without degradation of either (1) body factor and current drive, and/or (2) source/drain (to substrate) junction characteristics (i.e., junction leakage), and without compromising hot carrier immunity. Since there is no increase in source/drain junction capacitance, there is no degradation on performance, unlike conventional fabricated CMOS devices. As a result, reliable deep/sub-half micron CMOS transistors with high performance can be constructed using the technique of the present invention. It is to be noted that junction capacitance is not a critical or important design constraint in long channel MOSFET transistors (i.e., transistors with a channel length of greater than 0.5 microns).

Graded LDD Transistor with Localized Pocket Implants and Punch-Through Barrier

An alternate embodiment of the transistor of the present invention is illustrated in FIGS. 5 and 6. For convenience, this alternate embodiment can be described as a graded LDD transistor with localized pocket implants and punch-through barrier.

In order to further improve both punch-through characteristics without degradation on source/drain junction characteristics and current drive, an additional masking and implant step may be employed to create a punch-through barrier region under the active channel regions. The fabrication process for the graded LDD transistor with localized pocket implants and punch-through barrier is described below.

FIGS. 5A and 5B illustrate the localized punch-through barrier regions 51 and 51' formed after implantation and drive-in. These punch-through barrier regions 51 and 51' are formed sequentially by first masking and then implanting P- and N-type dopants into the substrate 20 and 20' for NMOS and PMOS transistors, respectively. The formation of the localized punch-through barriers 51 and 51' occurs after the threshold voltage implant step, but before the gate oxide formation step previously described above. Therefore, punch-through barrier regions 51 and 51' are also formed before transistor gate structure 26 is formed.

The implant conditions for P- and N-type punch-through barrier regions for respective NMOS and PMOS transistors are as follows. The P-type barrier for NMOS transistors is formed by implanting boron into substrate 20 at Energy(E)=(60-120)KeV, Q(dose)=(1.0-5.0)×1013 cm-2. The N-type barrier 51' for the PMOS transistor is formed by implanting phosphorous at E=(90-180)KeV, Q(dose)=(1.0-5.0)×1013 cm-2.

After the punch-through barrier regions have been implanted into the substrate, the subsequent fabrication steps of the transistor are substantially similar to those described previously for forming the graded LDD transistor with localized pocket implants. The final device structure according to this alternate embodiment is shown in FIGS. 6A and 6B.

It is to be noted that since punch-through barrier regions 51 and 51' are formed before the formation of the gate stack 26, it follows that regions 51 and 51' are not gate aligned, as are the other implanted regions in substrate 20 and 20'. Rather, the punch-through barrier regions are aligned using LOCOS regions 25.

However, in order to compensate for gate misalignment, tolerance must be incorporated into the length of regions 51 and 51'. The length of punch-through barrier 51 and 51' is defined by distance 19 and 19', respectively (FIGS. 5A and 5B). The lengths 19, 19' are preferably equal to the length 29 of the gate (FIG. 2) plus a two times the value of a gate misalignment tolerance (i.e. punch-through barrier region length=gate length (29)+2×(misalignment tolerance)). The misalignment tolerance may be, for example, about 0.1 microns.

As shown in FIGS. 6A and 6B, distances X4 and x5 define the upper and lower bounds of punch-through barrier regions 51 and 51', respectively. It is to be noted that the upper and lower boundaries of punch-through barrier regions 51 and 51' are primarily defined by implant energy (E) and thermal budget. If desired, the device structures of FIGS. 5A and 5B may be annealed before the gate oxidation step is performed.

Referring back to FIGS. 6A and 6B, distances r1, and r2 define the overlap regions between pocket (source-side and drain-side) regions 31a, 31b and 31a', 31b', and punch-through regions 51 and 51', respectively. The optimized profile for each of the punch-through barrier regions 51 and 51' is defined by the following equation: X3 (LDD)<X4 <X2 (pocket junction depth), where x5 >x2, and r1, r2 ≧0 microns.

For example, in one embodiment, the length of the punch-through barrier 51 may be expressed as:

=0.30 microns (gate length)+2×0.1 microns (misalignment tolerance)

=0.5 microns.

It is to be noted that a shallower value for the distance x4 will degrade body factor and current drive capability.

Silicided Source/Drain

In order to improve threshold voltage roll off and to reduce short-channel effect for sub-half micron transistors, shallow source/drain junctions are preferable (typically less than 0.15 microns), as described in the previous sections. However, for reduced source/drain junction (i.e., shallow junctions), the following parasitic device characteristics should preferably be addressed:

1. high diffusion resistance, and

2. deteriorated junction characteristics (i.e., leakage current).

For sub-half micron geometry (i.e., design rules) contact resistance will dramatically increase, which together with high diffusion resistance will significantly increase total source/drain resistance, as shown, for example, in FIG. 8, which illustrates the various resistive elements which contribute to overall source/drain resistance.

As can be seen in FIG. 8, the drain portion of a n-channel MOS is shown, which has been formed according to the technique described in the parent application. As shown in FIG. 8, the total source/drain resistance of the transistor of the present invention can be expressed by the formula:

Rtotal =Rch +2*(Rsp +Rn- Rn +Rn+ Rcont), where

Rch =conduction channel resistance,

Rsp =spreading resistance modulated by gate applied voltage in LDD region,

Rn- =diffusion resistance beyond the gate in lightly doped (LDD) regions,

Rn =diffusion resistance in moderately doped (MDD) source/drain regions,

Rn+ =diffusion resistance in heavily doped source/drain regions, and

Rcont =contact resistance (which is dependent upon contact size and contact metallization).

It is to be noted that for ULSI products, in order to maintain flexibility and routability for design libraries, only a minimum number of contacts are allowed for each individual transistor. Because of this, the current drive of the transistor is severely degraded due to high contact resistance and diffusion resistance.

In order to resolve the above-described problems, the following solutions are proposed. First, to resolve the problem of high contact/diffusion resistance, silicidation of source/drain regions is proposed. Second, to solve the problem of deteriorated source/drain junction characteristics, graded source/drain regions are proposed which overlap with the heavily doped source/drain regions 41a-b and 41a'-b', respectively. Such graded regions (i.e. co-implantation regions) are discussed in greater detail above with reference to FIGS. 6A and 6B.

In order to form metal-silicide layers 71a-b, 71a'-b' on respective source/drain regions 41a-b and 41a'-b', as shown in FIGS. 9A and 9B, the thin oxide layer over the respective source/drain regions is removed by a wet-dip process in diluted HF and a thin metal layer is then deposited, followed by a low temperature anneal process, to thereby form a metal-silicide on the exposed source/drain regions. The unreacted metal on the oxide surface is then removed by a chemical etch process. In order to reduce resistance of the metal-silicide, a second anneal step is performed at a higher temperature to complete silicidation on the graded source/drain junctions.

In a preferred embodiment, the metal layer deposited is titanium (Ti). It is to be understood, however, that other metals besides titanium may be used for the formation of the metal silicide. Preferably the type of metal used is a refractory metal such as, for example, titanium (Ti), tungsten (W), molybdenum (Mo), tantalum (Ta), platinum (Pt), chromium (Cr), nickel (Ni), or cobalt (Co).

Deposition of the metal layer may be achieved by a sputtering process or by a chemical vapor deposition (CVD) process. The thickness of the deposited metal layer is preferably about 200-400 Å. Removal of the excess metal may be achieved by a chemical etch process such as, for example, by using a mixture of NH4 OH and H2 O, or a mixture of H2 O2 and H2 O.

After deposition of the metal layer, a first, low temperature anneal step is performed in order to form the metal-silicide. During the low temperature anneal step, a rapid thermal anneal process may be employed according to the following conditions:

Temperature=(750-900)°C.,

time (t)=60 seconds in N.sub.2.

After the first anneal step, a second anneal step may be performed in order to reduce resistance of the metal-silicide. The second anneal step may also be a rapid thermal anneal process according to the following conditions:

Temperature=(850-900)°C.,

time (t)=30 seconds in N.sub.2.

After the annealing steps, the metal silicide 71a-b and 71a'-b'(of FIGS. 9A and 9B) will be formed. The thickness of the metal silicide will preferably be about 2.4 X the thickness of the deposited metal layer. Using the conditions described above, the thickness of the titanium-silicide layer will be approximately (480-960) Å.

Once formed, silicide layers 71a-b provide the transistor of the present invention the advantages of reduced contact resistance and reduced current degradation. Such advantages become more important as the channel length of the device decreases below 0.5 microns.

Although several preferred embodiments of this invention have been described in detail herein with reference to the accompanying drawings, it is to be understood that the invention is not limited to these precise embodiments, and that various changes and modifications may be affected therein by one skilled in the art without departing from the scope or spirit of the invention as defined in the appended claims.
